Autumn has arrived and the temperatures are falling fast in Delaware. The fluttering of insects will soon begin to fade ... but a beautiful butterfly necklace by Purple Peacock Jewels will be migrating from Natascha's studio in Switzerland to one lucky reader's home, no matter how cold the weather in that part of the globe. The antique brass necklace features a layered Victorian style centerpiece with a mounted glass cabochon that the winner can choose to be emerald (as shown above), amethyst or topas. The oval can also be swapped out for a round Swarovski flatback center stone in any available Swarovski element color. The top butterflies are embellished with Swarovski rhinestones to add a subtle sparkle. Several more butterflies dangle delicately from antique brass chains, accented with ornate connectors. Just as butterflies symbolize change, this piece of stunning steampunk jewelry will certainly transform any outfit it accessorizes.
The design is very dear to Natascha - it reflects her personality. She is a passionate dancer with a serious addiction to sparkling things. Dancing inspired her to explore the joy to adorn herself, from head to toe. Over time, she began to make accessories to add to her own costumes. Now she lovingly handcrafts a variety of earrings, rings, bindis, fascinators and chokers to make other inner goddesses feel good - on stage, while practicing or just for everyday glamor.
